Event presentations now available

Key agency presentations have been made available following the two ‘Meet the New Agencies in Learning and Skills’ events organised by the Third Sector National Learning Alliance (TSNLA) in Leeds and London during February and March.

The events provided insight into the direction and developments occurring in the transition from the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) to the new arrangements and the involvement of the Third Sector in the future of learning and skills. Presentations were given by the agencies which are replacing the LSC, the Young People’s Learning Agency (YPLA) and the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) as well as the Raising Expectations Action (REACT) programme which will support the commissioning of 16-19 year olds learning from the LSC to local authorities.

The TSNLA have launched a new telephone support service for third sector organisations who receive LSC funding directly or through another LSC provider to help with the transition to the new successor agencies. The helpline will aim to answer questions about the transition arrangements, particular issues relating to the new system and clarify the implications for organisations. To access this service call 01225 792500 and ask for the TSNLA helpline.
